What distresses me most -- what I am most sick and tired of hearing -- comes from members of the Congressional Black Caucus, Jessie Jackson and others, who say that the victims of Katrina should not be called "refugees" because that word has a "negative connotation".
CarolMosleyBraun in an interview with CNN today specifically linked the words "refugee" and "rioters".
I guess I understand where the fl leadership is coming from (some of the media coverage has been definitively racist).
